Liriano at home this season: 8-1, 1.47 ERA, 0.96 WHIP
Lefties vs. Liriano this season (Votto, Bruce, & Choo are lefties): .133 BA, .175/.146/.321, 0 HR, 37 K, 7 BB

If Liriano pitches as he has at home, I like our chances. Cueto has historically owned the Pirates, but his only two starts in the past three months have come against the Astros and Mets. It's risky putting him out there in a game like this, but given Cueto's success against the Pirates (13-4, 2.37 ERA, 1.015 WHIP in 21 career starts vs. Pittsburgh with the numbers being even better at PNC Park than GABP) I understand it.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick

Go Pirates obviously.
I wish they'd compress the schedule a little so these teams are at a bigger disadvantage. Play this one on Monday and make the winer start the divisional Wednesday afternoon or something.

As much as I'd like to see Pirates move on I think Cueto gets the job done here.

Could just be my dislike for Cincy coming out but I think Liriano pitching and the Pirates getting to play at home combined with the Reds bats going as cold as it gets will be enough for Pitt to win.

Go Cincy. Love me votto, choo, bruce, phillips, cueto, latos.

Good the bucs for getting there but I want to see Cincy go to the big show. Votto for MVP.

Interesting, I was kind of thinking the other way with the Reds not being able to gain any momentum going into the playoffs and Cueto still finding his way back from the injury, but that's what makes the one game playoff so wacky, I suppose. Both pitchers are certainly capable of scattering 3 hits over 7 or something and that's all she wrote for 162 battles....

A month ago I was leery of facing the Reds in the one game, but I like our chances now.

Of course, it's baseball and one game so sadly anything can happen and probably will.

I would rather play the Reds in the NLDS, but the Pirates should win this one.

Reds. Just for the fact that the Pirates swept the series at the weekend, it would seem like them to now lose the one that really matters!

Picking the Pirates. Liriano is too good at home, the crowd will be too electric and I hated the way the Reds ended the season.

Votto will be 0-1 with 3 BB and we'll hear how he didn't show up.
